Concordia music students recently performed during the Fall 2021 Chamber Recital on Nov. 7 at St. John Lutheran Church in Seward, performing music by Frédéric Chopin, Leonard Bernstein, Billy Joel and more.

“The students really found some neat music that I’m sure the audience enjoyed,” said Dr. Elizabeth Grimpo, professor of music, said. “All of the students performed at a high level and they’ve worked hard on their music.”
